Song of the Elves

Epic fantasy novels and short stories by David Charles Shepherd

Cover Art

I got my first glimpse of the cover art for A Shadow Falls this week and I’m delighted with the result.

Design Office in Crewe, England, have come up with a concept that really fits the feel for book one of the Song of the Elves, along with a font style that I’m sure will become synonymous with the whole series.  

There is just the right amount of menace lurking in the shadows about Farsee Forest, and I can’t wait to bring the completed project to you.  Details of where you will be able to purchase the paperback version of A Shadow Falls will be brought to you soon on this website.

Meanwhile, I have completed The Wolves of Winter  and will now go through two weeks of editing before making this latest short story from Rhoderica available to you.

Exciting times…  Long live the Elves!


About The Author

Writing has been my main form of escape since a child. Before teaching, I earned a living on a little known national newspaper, before discovering I also had a calling for the classroom. The first embryonic scribbles for Song of the Elves emerged in 2000. I began writing the first trilogy as one continuous manuscript entitled The Summerlands, which I finally completed in the Winter of 2007. In the intervening years, I've been transforming this first draft into three distinct instalments of the saga. "A Shadow Falls" and "The King's Blades" have already seen the light of day. "Sins of the Father" will follow shortly. There will be a second trilogy to complete the saga, which I intend to commence work on in 2012. Book four is entitled "The Lost, The Lonely and the Damned". I have also written a series of short tales entitled The Wolves of Winter, set in Rhoderica before the elves invaded the continent. This is now available through as a paperback and via amazon kindle as an e-book.. My second, 'Tale of Rhoderica' will be a fantasy version of the great John Ford western - The Searchers. Entitled, To the Ends of the Earth', the novel will be out for Spring 2016. I am also half-way through a manuscript for a science fiction novel, entitled The Mirror of His Soul. Time and health permitting, these will all eventually see the light of day.
